Child of an Immigrant
My father had a master's degree back home, but life here only permitted him to drive a cab, so he did. That love for education put the 3 of us kids through university, and in a position to better our next generations. That support put me in a situation to take more risks and get to where I am today.
When I wear this top outside, people stop me and tell me their own stories of their parents, grandparents, and even their own immigrant journey. It's awesome because I meet so many people I wouldn't have even thought were from immigrant families, and this top serves as a bridge that brings us together. Moving to the US is making me an immigrant, and I hope to honour those before me by working just as hard to pave a path for the next generation.
We got different colours now, soft t-shirts and hoodies, and more designs at humblethepoet.com
